We receive frequent requests for a Step by Step approach to training with Ultimate Puppy.

This Weekly Training Guide is intended as a lesson plan for anyone who has just brought home a new pup, or for puppy school professionals who want to use our training as part of their program. While there are no hard and fast rules regarding what should be done or when, we have placed what we believe are the most important aspects of the training at the beginning.

If you’ve just got a new puppy and are planning to use this Guide, please be aware that it is not intended to be used as a substitute for your attendance in a well run puppy class. There is hard evidence that early puppy socialization is a key component to raising a healthy dog. The best place to do this is at a well-run class, which provides vital dog-to-dog socialization in a controlled environment. Puppy class also offers coaching and guidance from an experienced professional who has seen hundreds of puppies and their training needs. A good puppy class can help you achieve success. We wish you the best of luck with your new puppy!
